    Central Baptist College feels like a family. The instructors, staff, and administration really care about their students and make you feel wanted here. The PACE Program offers alternative ways to take classes that allowed me to complete my degree while I still worked full-time. All in all, it's a great value and worthy investment!

    I love being apart of Central Baptist College’s student body. Being at CBC feels like home and the Christian environment through the students, facility and staff is truly heartwarming! I was drawn to CBC because I felt the Lord call me there to pursue missions. CBC is a growing college and even though I love the small atmosphere, I believe CBC would thrive in several areas if they expanded their mindset on growth.
    I’ve loved my time at CBC. While the course load can get challenging and stressful at times it’s very easy to keep up with if you stay organized. Your professors actually care about you beyond what they see in the classroom. They are always willing to help you and make time to listen. I have met more than friends I have met a family at CBC and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to grow in my faith with fellowship of other believers!
